How to Make MAPLE BAKED GOLDEN PEARS

Step-by-Step

  1. Arrange the pears cut-side up in an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Whisk the apple juice and syrup in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat until the syrup dissolves. Whisk in the butter.
  2. Pour the sauce over the pears, and sprinkle them with the chopped nuts.
  3. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven until the pears are tender and beginning to brown, basting occasionally with the juices, for about 35 minutes.
  4. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream, if desired.
